SMIL 2.0 Is a Proposed Edited Recommendation

   The SYMM Working Group has released a Proposed Edited Recommendation
   for the "Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL 2.0)."
   This second edition is not a new version; its purpose is to correct
   errors in the SMIL 2.0 first edition as a convenience to readers. SMIL
   (pronounced "smile") puts animation on a time line, allows composition
   of multiple animations, and describes animation elements for any
   XML-based host language. Comments are welcome through 5 December. Visit
   the Synchronized Multimedia home page.


Last Call: Semantic Interpretation for Speech Recognition

   The Voice Browser Working Group has released a Last Call Working Draft
   of "Semantic Interpretation for Speech Recognition." The draft
   describes the contents of speech recognition grammar tags used to
   represent natural language utterances. It is expected that the results
   can be integrated into the EMMA data format. Comments are welcome
   through 5 December. Visit the Voice Browser home page.


Last Call: xml:id

   The XML Core Working Group has released a Last Call Working Draft of
   "xml:id Version 1.0." The specification introduces a predefined
   attribute name that can always be treated as an ID and hence can always
   be recognized. Comments are welcome through 13 December. Visit the XML
   home page.


Program: W3C "Mobile Web Initiative" Workshop

   The program and position papers have been announced for the W3C "Mobile
   Web Initiative" Workshop to be held in Barcelona, Spain on 18-19
   November. Attendees will discuss how a W3C initiative could help to
   make Web access from a mobile device as simple, easy and convenient as
   Web access from a desktop device. Read about workshops and W3C's mobile
   Web work.


Use Cases: XML Binary Characterization

   The XML Binary Characterization Working Group has released an updated
   Working Draft of "XML Binary Characterization Use Cases." Presenting
   documented examples, the draft will help to decide if standardized and
   optimized serialization can be used to improve the generation, parsing,
   transmission and storage of XML-based data. Visit the XML home page.
